Check out these watering tips and video to keep your lawn looking beautiful all summer long!
- Water on an as-needed basis
- Newly seeded, sodded, or lawns less than two years old, should be irrigated.
- Water your lawn if the grass blades begin to wilt, develop a blue-gray color, or show footprints
- Water in the early morning, before 10 a.m. to minimize leaf wetness. Wet grass promotes disease problems.
- Water slowly to prevent runoff. Use a sprinkler to apply 1 inch of water to the lawn. Place a shallow can in the area being watered to monitor the amount being applied. After an inch of water collects in the can, check the soil moisture. Insert a screwdriver or other type of probe in the area. The soil should be moist 4 to 6 inches down.
- Automatic irrigation systems should be adjusted to the needs of grass plants and turned off during wet periods during the growing season.
